2A Wednesday, July 24, 2013 The Montmorency County Tribune Looking for family of Cora Ann McKenzJe To the Editor: My daughter was given some artifacts about a woman who grew up in Atlanta. She tried looking up the lady's family over the internet, but was unsuccessful. So she gave them to me in hopes I could return them to her family. The woman's name is Cora Ann McKenzie. Among the few photos in the photo album are Cora's high school diploma dated 1941 and a teacher certificate dated 1942. Cora attended several colleges before graduating from Eastern Michigan University. She taught for over 33 years in Michigan public schools. Cora was married for 33 1/z years to Edwin Kleiss. They had a daughter Sandi and a grandson Sean. (This infor- mation was dated 1982.) Cora came from a large family; she had two sisters and six brothers. Cora obviously treasured these items once. The di- ploma is in immaculate condition, even after 72 years. The same can be said for her teaching certificate. These items should belong to her daughter or grandson. If anyone reading this knows the family, or better yet, is a relative of Cora's, please let me know by contacting me at 9821 Fritz Rd., Atlanta, MI 49709. Both my daughter and myself would be happy to return them. Sincerely, Sharon Dennis, Atlanta Editors note: After receiving this letter, I went through our newspapers from 1941 and found Cora McKenzie's graduation class information. It states that her parents were Mr. and Mrs. Orley McKenzie of Briley Township. Her classmates were Dorothy E. Briley, Gladys A. McMurphy, Joel E. Secrist, Arnold J. Edwards, Olive V. Edwards, GrantJ. Valentine, Edith Mac Wyllys, Daisy Bell Mitchell and Robert L. Boice. If anyone has information on how to contact Cora's family, please contact Sharon Dennis so that the items may be returned.
